Gojira Have Set Out To Make “The Greatest Gojira Album Of All Time”


The road to Gojira‘s new album has been longer than originally anticipated, but there’s a reason for that. According to vocalist/guitarist Joe Duplantier, the group are trying to make “the greatest Gojira album of all time.” Duplantier recently spoke with of their noble pursuit:

“…Usually we compose a bunch of songs like 15 songs and then its like OK, we have 15 songs you know what I mean? Usually were very happy with the songs we have right away and we treat them like kids. Its like when you have a baby and you take care of that baby, you don’t think twice it’s just an immediate reflex to protect and nurture. Now its like, wait a second, we need our strongest album now, we need something really perfect.

First, we started to act like before and we had these songs and were like “OK it is what is it, maybe its not the greatest of all time”. Then we really thought about it and now we’re like, “no, it has to be the greatest Gojira album of all time”. So we got rid of all the songs that were not absolutely mind blowing and came up with more songs, it sounds really pretentious to say it’s the greatest album of all time, but to us it is.”

The as-yet untitled effort should receive a release in 2016 with more details still to come.
